Spring months in the Algarve are charming and lively, yet not too crowded. Let us guide you through the perks of a villa holiday in the South of Portugal in April, May and June
We all love the summer season in the Algarve, the beach fun, the breathtaking sunsets, the endless nights... but with this comes the crowds! If you enjoy a slower, more peaceful vacation, or are travelling with young kids, then you should definitely consider travelling to the Algarve in the Spring months! In April, May and June you will find perfect weather, a lively-yet-relaxed atmosphere and great accommodation choices. On top of that, you can add the amazing feeling of starting the holiday seasons way earlier!
Spring months normally come with the bonus of a spring break, meaning the little ones are off school. The perfect opportunity for a family getaway! This year, Easter holidays will come particularly late, around the end of the month of April, when good weather is pretty much guaranteed in the Algarve.
We mentioned that the weather is going to be good, but probably haven’t stressed enough how lovely it really is at this time of the year.The rainy days are all but over. Temperature is stable at 20° degrees during April, reaching 25° in May, with peaks of 30°. If you are concerned about too much heat, especially if travelling with toddlers, rest assured. The Algarve being a coastal region, offers a mild ocean breeze to freshen up the hottest hours of the day. The sea might be a little on the cool side in May, but why worry when you can relax in the heated pool at your villa? The average UV index for April and May is around 7, making it possible to enjoy the outdoors at all hours of the day.
The warm Spring weather months are perfect to engage in sporting and outdoor activities of all kinds. The Algarve offers a great range of sporting options to suit all tastes such as; golf, tennis, padel, mini-golf, cycling, running, swimming and much more. Did you know that the Algarve is the destination of choice of many professional football and rugby teams during the spring months? Kids training is also popular, combining entertainment and sport for a healthy fun time. If you prefer outdoor activities, the Algarve is well-known for its water activities: surf, stand up paddle, kayaking and so on.
Coming to the Algarve in the Spring months means you can experience all of your favourite restaurants, hanging out at your favourite spots or relaxing in your favourite villa under serene conditions! Contrary to the low season months, when most of the amenities in the Golden Triangle are closed for holidays or refurbishment, all restaurants, local shops and bars reopen for the summer season in March or the beginning of April. Some local spots that are already in the swing of things for 2019: The Shack, at Quinta do Lago lakeside, reopened on the first day of Spring, Izzy's Beach Restaurant restarted full time in the same period and Monty's Bar and Restaurant at Vale do Lobo’s Praça was open from February after the holiday rest.
